Reviewer: Sinclair, Ron - favoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - December 6, 2006
Subject: A helpful resource
I came across this book while chasing down the history of my father's half-brother, who had served and died in WW1. Dad had written in his notes on the family history in the 60's that his half brother came from Milton, and his name was on the cenotaph in downtown Milton. I verified this yesterday on a visit to Milton and also noted a reference to the 76th Battalion. Finding this book through Google was great because it listed Hugh C Sinclair, gave his enlistment number and also had a photo of him that we had never seen before. The enlistment number helped in finding his history in the Armed Services records, including his enlistment papers, and tells where he is buried in France.
While the book basically covers the 76th's time in Canada and not in France, it is quite interesting to read about how and where they trained.
Very helpful indeed to an amateur researcher
